My mother became pregnant with me on her honeymoon. She was a college student and so was my dad. Neither one of them had any intention of having a baby right away. In fact, they had eloped secretly, so no one even knew that they were married. They were still living in the separate male and female dorms, they were still going to their classes and pretending to their parents as though nothing had happened.
My mom found out at a doctorís visit that, sure enough, little Katherine was on the way. This was before abortion was legal - so you can do the math, there - and the first thing the doctor did was offer my mom an abortion. My mom, bless her heart, made the choice for life instead of the choice for destruction and Iím glad she did, because I wouldnít be here today.
From where I sit, abortion is the killing of someone whoís alive, has a soul and a consciousness that probably goes beyond a little tiny brain, but actually a consciousness that is a soul-level consciousness that I believe we all have when we come to this sphere of existence. To kill that person, or to tear them apart bit by bit, piece by piece, and put them back together again in some twisted, cloning or biological laboratory is not only a moral crime, but I believe is a crime against nature and humanity.
In the same way that you canít go over and kill or rape somebody, you canít go over to someone who is a living soul and destroy them.
I have a number of reasons for very specifically, viscerally and directly believing that those babies from the moment of conception are in a place of consciousness within our world and that they are very much affected by how we treat them.
